April 2020 Subscription Concerts to be cancelled

As part of the measures to prevent the spread of the novel corona virus infection, the NHK Symphony Orchestra will, with regret, call off the April subscription concerts (all 6 concerts in 3 programs). We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause to those who have been looking forward to the performances, but we ask for your kind understanding.

Tickets for the concerts will be refunded, so please keep the ticket/s you have purchased safe. As for how to receive the refund, either N-kyo guide or the ticket agency where you purchased the ticket/s will be contacting you around mid-April.

The NHK Symphony Orchestra will perform a concert on the first day of each program without an audience, which will be live-relayed on NHK-FM, and will be a deferred broadcast in “Classic Ongaku-kan (Classical Concert Hall)” on NHK Educational TV channel.

Due to international travel restrictions, Leonard Slatkin (conductor) and Branford Marsalis (saxophone), who had been scheduled to appear in the Program A in April, have had to cancel their trips to Japan. Therefore conductors and soloists will be changed as follows:

  Masaru Kumakura, conductor
  Kohei Ueno, saxophone

NHK Symphony Orchestra, Tokyo

  • Masaru Kumakura, conductor

    Masaru Kumakura, conductor

  • Junichi Hirokami, conductor

    Kohei Ueno, saxophone
